Writing the wind : a Celtic resurgence : the new Celtic poetry( Book )

7 editions published in 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of contemporary Celtic language poets offers a first comprehensive look in English at poets from Wales, Brittany, Scotland, Ireland, Cornwall, and Isle of Man writing in Welsh, Breton, Scottish Gaelic, irish Gaelic, Cornish and Manx. In tone, these voices are as sensitive as they are subversive. They mirror the struggle and resiliency of a century of language activist-writers who have defied attempts at cultural genocide by the English and the French - and have continued to write and speak their languages. The result of that staying power is evidenced in a ground swell of literary activity during the last half of the 20th century in all six Celtic countries represented in this book. These are the "New Celts", the progency of hundreds of years of ancient cultural tradition, yet a modern as anything being written anywhere in the world. -- Publisher description

The selected writings of Andrew Lang by Andrew Lang( )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A novelist, poet, literary critic and anthropologist, Andrew Lang is best known for his publications on folklore, mythology and religion; many have grown up with the 'colour' Fairy Books which he compiled between 1889 and 1910. This three volume set presents a selection of his work in these areas. The first volume covers the general and theoretical aspects of Lang's work on folklore, mythology and anthropology along with the tools and concepts which he used in his often combative contributions to these inter-related disciplines. As a companion to the first volume, the second is comprised of various case studies made by Lang, ranging from 'The Aryan Races of Peru' to 'Irish Fairies'. The third volume arranges his literary criticism, first by geo-cultural context and then chronologically. It begins with Lang's views on the nature and purpose of fiction, then presents samples of his work on some of the most important authors in the respective canons of French, American, Scottish and English literature including Victor Hugo, Edgar Allan Poe, Robert Burns and Charles Dickens among many others, mainly of the nineteenth century. Collectively, the General Introduction to the set and the Introductions to the individual volumes offer a thorough overview of Lang's work in an astonishing variety of fields, including his translation work on Homer and his contributions to historiography (particularly Scottish). The Introduction to Volume III sets Lang within the context of the literature of his times, comparing and contrasting him with significant contemporaries. Headnotes to the individual items are of varying length and provide more detail on specific topics, and explanatory notes supply unique intellectual comment rather than merely factual information"--

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first ever anthology of writing about Fife, a part of Scotland with an immensely rich tradition of history and literature. It gathers together all the great characters of Scottish history who have acted out their dramas within the famous Kingdom of Fife - St Margaret and Alexander I, James VI and the Earl of Moray, Cardinal Beaton and Archbishop Sharp, Mary, Queen of Scots and John Knox. Here too are the many great writers on Fife, from Robert Henryson to Robert Louis Stevenson, Walter Scott to Thomas Carlyle, and right up to Joe Corrie and Ian Rankin." "All walks of life are represented here - the whalers of Kirkcaldy and the miners of Lindsay Colliery; ambulance drivers and Hammermen; witches and magicians; golfers and distillers. The background to their lives, the fine castles and quaint cottages, fishing villages and scenes of rural beauty are celebrated in wonderfully varied prose and poetry. Anyone who knows and loves Fife will find in this book a collection of vivid and entertaining writing that unfolds the full splendour of Scotland's 'fringe of gold'"--BOOK JACKET
